Over Education of th) Mobbcd.
Ed. The Independent:
To speak about something oho
than annexation, let us have a talk
It has of ton struck us, that wo
nover read in tho papers any growl
about tho largo sums spent on education
in this country. Wo suppose tho
reason to be, that to find fault with
anything touching instruction is
considered as tantamount to crime
againtt progress and civilization.
Sober miudod citizens, howavor,
ought to ponder over their and the
country's interests boforo blindly
joining in tho chorus singing
ct neas" the praiso of obuoation.
Let us roason. Education has to
be efficient or inefficient. If inefficient
there is no earthly reason for
squandering thousands of procious
money on it. Schools in the country,
whero reading and writing and
the four rulos of arithmetic aro
taught, and a fow institutions
in Honolulu, and one on oach
island, are all that is noeded.
If efficient, it has to produce on-lightened
and refined men and women,
longing" for iutolleotual food,
as books, music, fine arts, lecture,
But now comes tho quostion.
Grautod that education bo efficient,
aud we shall in a fow years have an
army of refined electors. Do you
suppose that these gentlemou will
bo willing to run aftor bullocks or
plough, or strip cauo for $15 or $20
Aud what other prospeot
is there for thorn? Don't Chiueso,
Japanese and "new-comers" receive
at present tho proforonco for tho
fow situations as carpenters, storekeepers,
olorks, teachers, engineers,
or book koepers that fall open?
Somo people say, lot them procure
homesteads, and bo iudopoudent
farmers, but whero is the markot
for their products, where aro tho
roads? How can a man buy land,
fouce it in, break it up, build a
house and cistern, purchase livo
stock and implements, and live on
$15 or $20 a month? Mon of education
have not beou taught to solve
that problem yet. What will bo the
const quenco? Many will boeoruo
loafers a danger to Booioty others
compelled by dim necessity will
yield to tho inevitable, aud drag out
their miserable existence in tho
fields ou a level with a coolie. Is
that tho eud of education? Is that
the object iu spending so much precious
But tho question has auother aspect
All these young voters will
be able to road aud lioiug disappointed,
will .devour the socialistic
hooks .and papers, (almady two
populislic productions fell in to our
hands here), assimilating their prin
ciple; and being the largest number,
will capture our legislature, aud vote
tho most subversive laws. Wo might
add that tho political bosses, the
swindlers, and generally all the
malefactors are recruited from
amongst tho ranks of tho "deolasses"
poor discontod educated classes.
Does this mean that wo have to
let people grope (n ignornuco? If
nothing can be done to give our
working class a chance to lift itself,
if owing especially to Asiatio and
foreign competition, tho laborer has
to romaiu on tho level of a coqlio,
decidedly, yesl as ignoranco is bliss.
But if our Solons succeeded iu tho
Herculean task of making our islands
not a plati tors' but a people's
Paradise, tho more we eduoato tho
hotter so long as wo educate iu a
common ssus aud practical manner
to tench how thobattloof lifo should
bo fought. In tho moautimo,howevor,
aud till thoy have fouud that
thoy ought to bo loss free with
tho nation's funds iu regard to instruction,
aud seo that no more
highly paid leaven be iutroducod
from tho States to unduly raiso tho
dough of oducatiou in Hawaii.
Tiustis Veritas, sed Veritas
Almost anybody cau make a good
trade whon ho is iu a position to
diotato all tho terms aud compel tho
othor follow to comply. That is tho
conditiou of tho country to-day, a
few mon are in position to diotato
all tho terms by which tho common
people slay ou tho earth.

If the holders of Ewa stocks are
waiting to increase tho capital of
the company until "annexation"

Police officers should not expect
or seek remuneration from private
people for performing tho duties for
which they aro paid out of tho public
funds. Tho mon detailed to obtain
evidence against lawbreakers,

for instance should bo furnished
with tho necessary funds by tho
authorities to pay tho expenses connected
with thoir detectivo work.
For police officers to ask tho merchants
who pay hoavy liconso fees to
the govommont for ' extras" to protect
them is a fashion which savors
unpleasantly of black mail.
This Is for Blood.
Tho match raco between Allan
Jones and Geo. Sharrick, tho two

Our local "bikeists" aro divided iuto
